We need foster families!
This dog is not available for adoption.
This face is just one of the faces that was saved from death in a shelter.
How did we do it? With generous donations from people like you! Also, our foster homes were waiting with open arms to keep these dogs in their house while we find them new homes. Please won't you consider fostering a dog for Rudy's Rescue???
Right now, there are many dogs and puppies in the pound waiting for us to bring them to safety. Without the support of our foster families we cannot pull these dogs from the pound and bring them to Rochester.

Fostering is a good option for those who love dogs but cannot commit to a dog for 10-14 years. Most of our dogs are in their foster homes for two weeks to two months.
Our featured dog is Remi.
Remmington is a 6 year old Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever + Poodle). He came to Rudy's at 123lbs and is now down to 113lbs but probably could lose a few more. He has been a foster with Rudy's since the end of March.
He is a happy strong boy. He is housebroken and crate trained. Knows Sit, Shake and Down. He enjoys getting pets and being with people and meeting new people. He gets every excited to go outside or on walks. He gets along with the resident dogs. He generally walks well on lead but will pull to try to get to cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc. It will be required that he be walked using a harness.
Upon arriving at his foster's home, he was given a vet examine and the following was found:
1. He has a large lipoma (benign fatty tumor) on his flank. This was examined by a Vet and they determined it was benign and did not need to be removed. It may shrink a little if he lost weight. The Vet would only recommend removing it if it ever interferes with his mobility in the future.
2. He has a bald spot on his flank as well this resulted in a blood test. He was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. This condition is easily remedied with medication giving pills 2x per day. The pill is small enough that he will eat it with his kibble. He is currently working with the vet to determine the correct daily dosage. This medicine will need to be given throughout his life.
Due to his size, it is recommended that he go to a home where he will not be around small children and we believe he'd prefer to be an only dog..

Our featured dog is Roscoe.
Rosco is a five year old neutered, chocolate Lab mix. This guy had a tough start to his life, as he spent a large portion of it living
on his own and fending for himself. Even after a life like that, he arrived at Rudy's Rescue with the sweetest personality and lots of love to share!
Rosco's goal in life is to share his love with his human doing whatever makes them happy together! He knows some basic obedience commands, likes to play fetch and enjoys swimming. He will entertain himself with his toys, but thrives on attention from his people!
Rosco has been diagnosed with Epilepsy, which is under control with a daily medication regiment. He is house broken, current on vaccinations, microchipped and up to date on his flea, tick and Heartworm preventatives.
If you're looking for a sweet boy to love and share your life with, Rosco is the TOTAL PACKAGE!
